Selecting SMS Numbers

Realvolve > Settings:

Select​ ​"​SMS​ ​Services​"​ ​to​ ​choose​ ​a​ ​custom​ ​SMS​ ​number​ ​for​ ​sending​ ​text​ ​messages from​ ​inside​ ​Realvolve.​ ​​​Choose​ ​your​ ​country,​ ​enter​ ​your​ ​local​ ​area​ ​code​ ​then​ ​choose one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​available​ ​SMS​ ​numbers​ ​then​ ​click​ ​​Save​.

Note:​ ​​​In​ ​order​ ​for​ ​Realvolve​ ​to​ ​send​ ​SMS​ ​messages​ ​you​ ​​MUST​​ ​select​ ​from​ ​the​ ​list​ ​of available​ ​SMS​ ​numbers.​ ​​​​THIS​ ​WILL​ ​NOT​ ​BE​ ​THE​ ​SAME​ ​AS​ ​YOUR​ ​NORMAL MOBILE​ ​PHONE​ ​SMS​ ​NUMBER.

Once​ ​you​ ​have​ ​an​ ​assigned​ ​Realvolve​ ​SMS​ ​number​ ​you​ ​can​ ​select​ ​notification preferences​ ​to​ ​receive​ ​Emails​ ​and/or​ ​SMS​ ​notifications​ ​when​ ​you​ ​receive​ ​a​ ​Realvolve SMS​ ​Message.​ ​​​Realvolve​ ​uses​ ​the​ ​“Cell​ ​Phone”​ ​field​ ​in​ ​your​ ​My​ ​Account​ ​settings​ ​for notifications.

While we try to maintain a broad selection of area codes at all times, you can sometimes run into the issue where the area code you're looking for is temporarily out of stock. If this happens, we recommend using overlay area codes as a workaround. You may find the complete list of area code overlays


Example: 212 is the original area code for New York City (Manhattan to be exact). The overlays 646917, and 332 have been added as the need for additional numbers has grown. You can see a full list of overlays in the North American Numbering Plan.

Canada also has a few exhausted area codes. Examples of such area codes include but are not limited to 416 (Toronto), 905 (Ontario) and 403 (Calgary) numbers.  These numbers can become available if someone releases the number but often is not available.
